The ‘SUSTRAIL’ High Speed Freight Vehicle: Innovations and the Assessment of the Benefits and Costs

The aim of the SUSTRAIL project is to promote modal shift of freight in Europe from road to rail. A key objective of the policy is the shift of 30% of road freight over 300km to other modes such as rail or waterborne transport by 2030 (and 50% by 2050) as targeted by the European Commission. The SUSTRAIL project is working to provide the approach, structure, and technical content to support this modal shift through improvements in the railway freight system including innovations in rolling stock in track components.
